Do you think the fines handed down by the NFL to the Jets surrounding the whole Brett Favre injury incident had any type of effect. It certainly didn't effect us financially but looking over the injury report from today it seems that if you even dared mutter about any type of injury you were heading to the list, just to be careful of course.
First of all lets get to the two big ones that I'm sure you have all heard about by now, I only just heard because I only just got home but was very disappointed.
Donald Strickland and Lito Sheppard have both been listed as out for Sunday's clash with the Titans. While Strickland's comes as no surprise to me, I thought Lito would be at worst a game time decision. What this means is that Lowery will move over to the 2nd corner position and Drew Coleman..........*waits for the collective groans to fade* will take over from Strickland's nickel position.
Outside of these two there really is only one doubt, and that comes in the form of 7th round 2009 draft choice OG Matt Slauson who is nursing a ankle injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday after being limited in practise today.
Here are the other names that you will find on the injury report who participated fully in practise today and listed as probable for Sunday, in fact nearly all of them are guaranteed for Sunday.
Kellen Clemens (Elbow), Kris Jenkins (Back), Jim Leonhard (Knee), Dwight Lowery (Ankle), Nick Mangold (Toes), Sione Pouha (Ankle), Mark Sanchez (Knee), Bryan Thomas (Ankle), Jamaal Westerman (Quad), Damien Woody (Shoulder), Wallace Wright (Hamstring).
Looking at the list alone is enough to make you break into a sweat, fortunately we know that the majority really are not an issue. However we are certain now that if we are to go 3-0 on the season, we will have to do it missing key contributors in the secondary.
